Jailed Tanzim leader and Fatah Central Committee member Marwan Barghouti urged Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian factions to lead a "popular resistance" to stop Israeli's settlement construction and "Judaizing" activities. "I have always called for creatively combining negotiations with resistance and political, diplomatic and popular activism," Barghouti was quoted by Israel Radio Saturday as telling Palestinian Al Hayat Al Jadida newspaper. "I warned against relying exclusively on negotiations, but some were late to discover this," he reportedly added. In a message transmitted via his lawyer from the Israeli prison where he has been incarcerated for seven years after being convicted of five murders, Barghouti claimed there was no Israeli peace partner. Barghouti made similar remarks in October, when he warned that the circumstances that led to the second intifada still existed and called on the Palestinians to conduct a "peaceful resistance" campaign. At the time, the Tanzim leader said "whoever thinks it's possible to make peace with the current Israeli government is being delusional."
